I’ve mentioned before how my daily commute takes me past a church sign every day. Truth is, it takes me past two church signs on two different highways. Yesterday I happened to notice that the other church sign had a message that was, well, less than clear in its meaning.
It reads as follows:
BE THE FAUCET
NOT THE DRAIN
IT’S UP TO YOU!
I know it’s supposed to be a metaphor, but I’m not sure why a faucet is a positive thing while a drain is a negative thing. If your basement is flooded you’re going to grow an appreciation for having some way of draining it and a faucet can be a problem if you can’t shut it off. Perhaps they mean that Christians should do all the talking and not bother listening as a sure-fire way to win converts? It’d certainly be a good way to avoid being exposed to new or differing ideas.
Does anyone have a clue what the hell this is supposed to mean? Is it not as stupid as my brain seems to think it is? I’m probably over thinking it. Wouldn’t be the first time.
